I recently completed book one of my fantasy trilogy, and have begun to send out query letters to agents. An agent I queried by email just a few days ago sent me a rejection letter this morning. It wasn't the usual form rejection. It was actually the nicest rejection I've received yet! She sent me a personal reply and some links for me to try and connect with an agent. This site was on her list! So here I am, and I'm so happy to be here. What a great resource!
I haven't seen any other Canadians on the site yet. (If you're out there, give me a shout, eh?)
I have a question: is it fairly common for Canadians to have American agents? The thing is: there are very few literary agents in Canada, and of those few, only a very small percentage will represent fantasy. So, all three of them have rejected me already. I'm wondering if I should be looking to the States or even the UK for an agent?
Any thoughts or advice on this would be greatly appreciated.
